Skipper Garry Monk says the Swans should have won Saturday’s match comfortably against Fulham in the FA Cup 5th round.

Martinez’s side dominated the game but failed to put their chances away, which means they’ll have to beat Fulham at Craven Cottage if they want to face Manchester United at home in the quarter-finals.

It’s a huge incentive and reward for us to go there and beat the Cottagers as it’s not every year you get the chance to host the Premier League title holders and one of the best sides in the world.

Monk conceded a very unlucky own goal from a corner, and he told the Evening Post:

‘There were a lot of bodies at the far post and Dorus came out to punch it but it hit me on the hip and went in.

‘What could I do? Nine times out of 10 it would drop straight down and I would clear it.

‘We were dominating at the time as well. It was a massive sucker punch.

‘We showed the character we have got. It was a good goal by Jase (Scotland) and with the chances we had we should have won the game quite comfortably.

‘With the possession and territory we managed to get, then we look at it as a chance lost.’
